WOYWW #383

Well it is Wednesday and it has for sure gone by fast but this is the day to hop around and to see might be lying around so many wonderful creative friends desks. If you are new to all of this hop over to Julia's our great founder of this and join in the fun.

Okay well not much going on really but working on a new double layout for Halloween. Not even close to being done as I just can not decide on what paper really fits with the creepy effect I want. Hoping I do get sometime in the next few days to get working on it again. My desk did look like a bomb of paper went off with the piles of every Halloween paper I own right across both tables but I cleaned up........

To make the crinkled up paper with distress ink of I think five different colours and then spray water over to let the ink move around. Added a tad to much so before I started supper the other day my paper went first into the low temp of the oven to dry fast..... Should really use oven to bake cookies.....not my craft stuff. Something my one daughter always says some moms bake cookies and my mom bakes paper or what ever I have in there. I know I did say last week about a giveaway I am planning but the last few days just got away from me and should have it ready to post for next week as I do hope to get into my room later this week. Short and sweet post as I really haven't done much with trying to recover from the lung infection but it still hanging in so I will be heading back to the doctors I go. 

Just want to say to everyone thank you so much for visiting me last week and leaving me such wonderful comments. Ok well off to head to as many desks as I can before taking my little hair babies to the groomers for a well need bath and tidy to come home looking handsome.

Have a FABULOUS Wednesday everyone.

  2. I am sure you will find just the perfect paper....laughing at you drying your crinkled paper in the oven! Helen #2

  3. I reckon that's always the most awkward phase of a project- the very beginning, when it could take a number of different directions!Look forward to seeing more next week.

  4. Lovely spooky stuff there - it made me laugh that you put your papers in the oven to dry!! Well, if it works, who cares??

  7. The most difficult part is choosing the papers! It will look fab, I'm sure. Enjoy your week! zsuzsa #22

  8. Love the crinkled paper. BJ#37

  9. I'm totally loving the halloween layout. Here's hoping you find just the right paper to compliment it. I do like the crinkled paper though. It looks like it was made that way and not something you created. I guess that's the result of the baking! Ha!

  10. Oh I'm sorry that you're still poorly, my word it's been a tough one to shake off hasn't it. I know...prescribe yourself a week by the sea...all that fresh air will work!! Would be nice, huh! I love the idea of you baking the paper...and I totally get that you had every paper out to find the right one and then ended up making your own. Good for you though, I'd have given up!

  11. Great technique to achieve all that texture on the paper. At least there are no calories in baking paper. Have a lovely week.

  14. Wow Anne! so tidy, maybe you could pop round and sort me out! If you can find an additional use for household appliances then go for it that's what I say Lol! I noticed you don't have many followers yet and I know how difficult it is people don't seem to become followers like they used to so I've joined your so at least that's one more for you. Happy crafty woyww, Angela x 14

  15. Happy Belated WOYWW. Your layout is already looking great. I think I will avoid using the oven for my crafting - I would forget and burn it! I just use my trusty heatgun for all of my drying needs - and it warms me up too. Ali x #26
